Card Stories provides a server for a networked guessing game using picture cards. One player (the "author") starts the game by choosing a card, picking a word or a sentence to describe it, and sending out invitations to others to participate. Each of these players receives seven cards and has to pick one that best matches the author's description. Once enough players have chosen a card, the author displays all chosen cards and the players try to figure out which one is the author's. If at least one but not all of them guesses correctly, the author wins, along with the players who guessed correctly. Otherwise, the guessers all win.
Fivebit is a Python 3 compression library for short text strings. It compresses short strings of text into five bit encoding, which yields a 37.5% reduction for lowercase ASCII. There is also a dictionary for the 1024 most common English words (3 letters or longer). Punctuation, digits, and normal symbols will usually take up 10 bits each, and oddball Unicode characters will take up more space again.
HolyGrail is an implementation of the GTD's next action list. In other words, it's a kind of todo list. It is composed of realms (contexts), quests (projects), and missions (todos). A realm groups missions, and generally represents a location or a situation, e.g. "at work", "at home", or "code". A mission is the next physical action to do to complete your goal. A quest is a succession of missions; it represents a goal. Every time what you are planning requires more than one next action, create a project.
Langer is an object oriented, rule based programming language. Its interpreter is shipped as a Python library. It was created to express behavior strategies, has a simple syntax based on languages like Python and C, and was designed to be convenient and readable for a programmer, but it can be easily used in genetic programming as well.
Opticks Extras is a set of official extensions for the Opticks application. The Spectral Processing extension adds multi-spectral and hyper-spectral processing capability to Opticks. The IDL Scripting extension integrates an IDL interpreter directly into the Opticks application. The Python Scripting Extension integrates a Python interpreter directly into the Opticks application.
Squires is a Python library which simplifies the creation of powerful self-documenting readline-based command line interfaces. Scripts using Squires have the following features in their interface: full readline bindings, tab completion of commands and their options, inline command help (which is accessed by pressing tab), option syntax validation, and hidden commands and options.
Flac-utils is a toolkit for managing FLAC files. Its primary usage is syncing metadata between sets of FLAC files. Flac-utils also provides a Python module called flac_compare that can be used separately. The utilitiy consist of three tools: flac-sync, which syncs a file tree of FLAC comments for files with the same audio-part; flac-diff, which compares two FLAC files' metadata information and shows the differences; and flac-add-picture, which adds album cover art to the files using Amazon.
